think obama has had a little bit of a rally in the last few days, but very little. i would say that romney had some bull market through the debate. not. there is no little bear market rally that could be for obama, little production, and the big question for me is over the next three or four days, there are two possible things that could happen. steady race to the end, obama's little rally continues, or, i think and this is most likely, the obama rallies outside. in the primary trend research itself. i've seen that happen. romney picks up two or three points over the next for five days. and he wins by a couple. that is the most likely outcome. >> all important jobs report out tomorrow. expectations for what it 7.9% unemployment rate, that is 10 times higher than it was last month. with equanimity. levitate it is good news or bad? >> i don't think it's possible that employment report help obama unless there is a huge jump in employment. if there was a big jump we went down to 7.5%. i think anything else would be a wash. it's not hurting the president. one point to what bill said

think at the end of the day, it comes down to ohio. and obama has a kiconsistent le in the polling there. by the way, something i'd love to know is what is the value of a candidate's appearance in a state? i asked somebody who spends a lot of time crunching numbers, looking at the polls in an analytical way. he said that it's very blurry, but i would just love to know how much of a bounce do you really get from a visit to a state? it's kind of a mystery to me. >> yeah. >> michael, i think when you look at obama in '08 and then again in 2012, he seems to have the luck of the irish, once again, a pre-election-day crisis that fits into his themes in '08, obviously the financial crisis made him look cool and calm under pressure. and this time we have a crisis that makes him look like, you know, that highlights his themes of we don't leave anybody behind. government should be there for people had they are most vulnerable. i mean, does this guy have the luck of the irish here or what? >> right. well, he does have some distant irish relatives. >> right. >> right. >> remember that correctly from
